Having made nearly 200 appearances for Spurs, and scoring more than 50 goals for the Premier League giants, Dele is a household name with 35 England caps, and a World Cup appearance, to his name.

Dons chairman Pete Winkelman said: “It’s only a year on from watching him represent England at the World Cup, and here we go again, with Dele on the biggest stage in club football this weekend.

“We continue to be extremely proud of Dele and his achievements and we wish him every success in the final on Saturday.

“I am sure it will be a thoroughly entertaining game between two of this country’s most exciting teams.”
